Important Information
Radio Frequency Exposure Operating
Instructions
This device was tested for compliance with the applicable FCC and Industry Canada specific absorption
rate (SAR) limits for radio frequency (RF) exposure during typical body-worn operations. To ensure that
RF exposure levels remain at or below the tested levels, use a belt-clip, holster, or similar accessory that
maintains a minimum separation distance of 1.0 cm between your body and the device, with either the
front or back of the device facing towards your body. Such accessories should not contain any metallic
components. Body-worn accessories that do not meet these specifications may not ensure compliance
with applicable SAR limits and their use should be avoided.
Important Note on Recoverable Data
Files and other data that have been deleted, cleared, removed, or erased from your device may still be
recoverable by third-party data recovery software. Even a factory reset may not permanently erase all
data from your phone, including personal information.

signals, it may take up to 30 seconds or more to determine and report your approximate location.

Wi-Fi Calling
Wi-Fi calling gives you the ability to make and receive phone calls and send and receive text messages
over a wireless network. Because Wi-Fi Calling uses a wireless connection, your calls, texts, and data
activity won't count against your limits on your Sprint plan. Wi-Fi Calling also enhances coverage in areas
where a phone signal is weak.
Warning: 9-1-1 Emergency Calling using Wi-Fi Calling
Because Sprint Wi-Fi Calling is a Voice over IP service that sends calls over the Internet, it’s important to
note that 9-1-1 works differently than a regular 9-1-1 call on the Sprint Network.
When you make a 9-1-1 call with a Sprint Wi-Fi Calling-enabled phone, your phone will first attempt to
complete your call like any other 9-1-1 call on the Sprint Network. If wireless coverage is not available,
your phone will try to complete a 9-1-1 call over Wi-Fi. Because of this, it’s important to always make sure
you have an accurate address registered to each Wi-Fi access point you use for Sprint Wi-Fi Calling.
If you would like to order a reminder sticker for your phone that explains how the 9-1-1 process works with
Sprint Wi-Fi Calling, please contact Care by dialing
from your Sprint phone or 844-665-6327.
Set Up and Enable Wi-Fi Calling

Capture Better Photos
Here are some tips on how to improve the quality of your photos on your phone.
Improve Focus and Sharpness
●
Your phone’s camera has autofocus, which works best on a subject that is not moving too much.
To change the focus, on the Viewfinder, touch the one you want to focus on.
●
If the subject is moving, on the Viewfinder, touch and hold the subject to lock the focus.
●
You can manually adjust the sharpness of a photo by editing in the Gallery app. You can also set
the sharpness before taking a photo in the Camera settings. Generally, it is better to sharpen a
blurry image rather than to reduce the sharpness in an image.
Take Well-lit Photos
●
Your phone automatically adjusts the focus and exposure. If the image appears underexposed or
appears dark on the Viewfinder screen, touch a part of the image that is in shadow. Conversely,
touch a well-lit object in the image if the image seems to be overexposed. Focus on an object
with a neutral tone for a balanced exposure. Keep in mind that touching on another object may
shift the focus from your subject.
●
If you are using the default settings and the photo still appears too dark, switch to Night scene,
but use a tripod or place your phone on a level surface.
●
If there are parts of the image that are in shadows and others are in highlights, use HDR mode to
capture three shots of different exposures and combine them into one shot. Keep your phone
steady or place it on a level surface when using HDR.
●
When taking a panorama shot, consider the whole scene and focus on an object that has a
neutral tone to help keep the exposure balanced in the composite image.
●
If your subject is lit from the back, use Backlight scene to highlight the foreground and keep
some details of the background.
Other Tips
●
In Camera settings, touch Grid to help frame the subject better or improve the composition.
●
If taking photos under fluorescent or incandescent bulbs and the subject appears to be off-color,
touch >
and then choose a white balance setting. Check the image on the Viewfinder and
select the option that displays the closest color to the natural color of the subject.
●
In Camera settings, you can touch Image adjustments and adjust the exposure, contrast, and
others before taking the photo.
●
After capturing the photo, you can continue to edit the contrast, brightness, and others in the
Gallery app.

Use Zoe Camera
Don’t let the best moments just pass by. When timing is everything, capture the exact moment with your
phone and get more than just a still photo.
With just a convenient button in Zoe camera mode, you can:
●

●

Gallery, such as such as Sequence Shot, Always Smile, and Object Removal. See Access

When taking your burst shots with a 3-second video clip, it's good practice to:
●
Keep your phone steady to capture moving subjects against a static background scene.
●
If using Sequence Shot to stitch different action shots into one photo, encourage the subject to
make obvious lateral movements.
●
When taking a group photo, ask your subjects to hold the pose until you have finished capturing.

receive information to and from an NFC-enabled device. Just place the phone’s back panel closer to the
other device to start exchanging information.
Connect a Bluetooth Headset or Car Kit
You can listen to music over a Bluetooth stereo headset, or have hands-free conversations using a
compatible Bluetooth headset or car kit.
Important: For you to listen to music with your headset, the headset must support the A2DP Bluetooth

Backup and Reset
Find ways on how to back up your data or how to reset the phone.
Backup
Always keep important stuff on your phone. Back up your phone before you erase the storage, do a
factory reset, or upgrade to a new phone.
Backup Options
●
HTC Backup. Use the built-in HTC Backup to back up your accounts, apps, settings, and more to
the cloud so that it will be easier to restore them on your phone (after a factory reset) or on a
newer phone.
●
HTC Sync Manager. Use HTC Sync Manager to import music, photos, and videos to your
computer. You can also sync locally stored contacts, calendar events, bookmarks, documents,
and playlists to your computer. Likewise, HTC Sync Manager is a good alternative if you don’t
want to back up your accounts, settings, and other personal content to the cloud. You can use it
to create backups of your phone on your computer. For details, see HTC Sync Manager.
●
Other backup options. Separately back up other data and file types if they’re not supported in
HTC Backup and HTC Sync Manager. In some apps, you can back up data to the storage on the
phone so you can easily restore them after a factory reset.
Settings

Messages. Back up your text messages to the storage on the phone, or save them as an
email attachment. See Back Up and Restore Your Text Messages.

Contacts. Save contacts and other personal data to your online accounts so you can just
sync them when switching to another phone. If you have locally stored contacts in the People
app, export them to the storage on the phone. See Back Up and Restore Your Contacts.

Files. Manually copy and paste files by connecting your phone to your computer as a disk
drive. You can also upload files to online storage and services.
199

Other data. If you added new words to your personal dictionary in the onscreen keyboard,
back up the dictionary to the storage or save it as an email attachment. See Enter Text with
Word Prediction on the HTC Sense Keyboard. Check the other apps to see if they support
exporting data to the storage.
Note: If you’re backing up data to the storage, don’t choose to erase the storage when you do a factory
reset.
Use HTC Backup
Save the time and frustration of restoring your content when you do a factory reset or you lose, damage,
or buy another phone. On your phone, use HTC Backup to do a regular backup to the cloud so you can
easily restore your content next time.
On your phone, use HTC Backup to do a daily backup to the cloud so you can easily restore your content
and settings next time.
HTC Backup uses your Google Drive or Dropbox storage to keep your content and settings. It can back
up and restore the following:
●
Personalization settings. These include your feed sources in HTC BlinkFeed, widgets,
wallpaper, Home screen layout, and ringtones.
●
Accounts and passwords. HTC Backup stores the login credentials for many popular email and
social network accounts, including Exchange ActiveSync, Outlook.com, and POP/IMAP.

Apps and settings. These include your contacts stored on your phone, text messages, web
bookmarks, personal dictionary, Wi-Fi networks, free apps you’ve installed, grid size and sort
order on the Apps screen, and more. The backup can also include TV remotes and viewing
preferences.
Backup Your Phone to Google Drive
Turn on HTC Backup to do a daily backup of your content over Wi‑Fi. You can turn it on by selecting

Restore Your Backup to Your Phone From Google Drive
If you backed up your phone to Google Drive before, you can restore your backup to your phone, or to a
new HTC phone.
Note: Depending on the amount of content, doing a manual backup through data connection may incur
additional data costs and take a long time. Using a Wi-Fi connection is recommended.

Types of Storage
Your phone has the following storage types for your apps, data, and files.
●
Phone storage. This storage combines both the internal storage, where apps, email, data, and
text messages are stored, and the file storage, where photos, videos, and music files are kept.
When you are running out of phone storage, you can free up space by uninstalling apps,
changing download settings, or moving files to your computer or to an online storage service.
●
SD card (Storage card). Use a storage card (purchased separately) for storing more files. You
can also set apps such as Camera to store directly to the card.
●
USB storage. When you plug in an external USB storage device (such as a USB flash drive or
an SD card reader), you can view photos and videos stored on the device right from Gallery and
play songs stored on the device in Music. You can also open PDFs and edit Office documents.
You need a special cable adapter to connect your phone and a USB storage device. Your phone
supports USB storage devices (except portable hard drives) up to 64 GB.
●
Settings
Online storage. If you’re using an online storage account that’s accessible from your phone, you
can store your files to your online storage.
211
Copy Files To or From Your Phone
You can copy your music, photos, and other files to your phone.
1. Connect your phone to the computer using the supplied USB cable. You’ll see options for viewing
or importing files on the computer screen.
2. Choose to view files.
3. Copy the files from your computer to your phone, or vice versa.
4. After copying the files, disconnect the phone from the computer.
Make More Storage Space
As you use your phone, you’ll accumulate data and fill its storage capacity over time. Here are some tips
on how to increase storage space.
Run the Storage Wizard
Free up space in the phone storage by uninstalling apps and deleting files you no longer need. In
Settings, touch Storage > Make more space.
Store Files in Google Drive
Photos, email attachments, and other documents can be stored in Google Drive and accessed anywhere
you are. You can set the Camera app to automatically upload photos to Google Drive. See Google Drive
for details.
Note: Google Drive is a third-party app and is not provided by or associated with HTC Corporation.
Manage Photos and Videos
●
Set the Camera app to automatically upload to a photo-sharing site or online storage. You can
retrieve them from the photo-sharing site or online storage when needed.
Note: Using data services while uploading photos and videos may be costly. You may want to connect to
Wi-Fi or disable auto upload of camera shots if you have a limited data plan.
●
After taking continuous camera shots, keep only the best shot and discard the rest.
●
After editing a photo or trimming a video, the original file is kept. You can delete original files or
move them to online storage or to your computer.
●
If you are only sending videos through MMS, use a lower resolution. High-resolution video takes
up more space. In Camera settings, touch Video Quality to change the resolution.

connected to the power adapter during encryption. This process takes may take about an hour or so.
You cannot undo encryption on the phone storage. If you want to return to an unencrypted phone, you
must perform a factory reset. Once you enable storage card encryption, only new files added after
encryption will be encrypted. Files already on the card will not be encrypted. Also, storage card encryption
doesn't reformat or erase your card. Encrypted files on the storage card can only be opened by the phone
that encrypted them.

> Storage.
2. Touch Phone storage encryption. Or, touch Encrypt SD card content.
3. Touch NEXT.

Battery Saving Tips
How long the battery can last before it needs recharging depends on how you use your phone. The power
management features of your phone helps increase battery life. In times when you need to extend the
battery life more, try out some of these tips.
Check Power Usage
Monitoring your battery usage helps you identify what’s using the most power so you can choose what to
do about it. For details, see Check Battery Usage.

only when you need your precise location while using navigation or location-based apps. For
more information on location services, see Location Settings.
●
If the Sleep mode option in Settings > Power is enabled, at low peak times, your phone will turn
off the data connection after the screen has been off for 15 minutes and there’s no network
activity (no downloads, streaming, or data usage). The data connection resumes when you switch
the screen back on.
●
Turn on Airplane mode when you don’t need any wireless connections and you don’t want to
receive calls or messages. For details, see Airplane Mode.
Manage Your Display
Lowering the brightness, letting the display sleep when not in use, and keeping it simple helps save
battery power.
●
Use automatic brightness (the default), or manually lower the brightness.
●
Set the screen timeout to a shorter time.
●
Don’t use a live wallpaper for your Home screen. Animation effects are nice to show off to other
people but they drain your battery. Changing your wallpaper to a plain, black background can
also help a little. The less color is displayed, the less battery is used.
●
Set the Web browser to auto dim the screen while webpages load. Open the Internet app, and
then touch

background. It’s recommended not to let apps sync data too often. Determine which apps can be set with
longer sync times, or sync manually.
●
In Settings, touch Accounts & sync and check what types of data are being synced in your
online accounts. When the battery is starting to run low, temporarily disable syncing some data.
